Meeting Impression: Heart failure, Diabetes, and Renal Dysfunction: Time for a more unified approach
See below to download the Meeting Impression This lunch symposium held during ESC Heart Failure 2017 explored mechanisms and common pathways underlying the development of cardiovascular disease (CVD) and heart failure (HF) and the particular risk of patients with diabetes. Innovation in the field of HF management is ongoing. This has yielded several new agents in recent years, which are likely to change clinical practice. The role of anti-diabetic therapy, in particular the use of SGLT2 inhibitors, was discussed in the context of a risk-based intervention strategy that targets glucose control and CV risk factors.
